Newbie from Edison NJ - New bike Trek 2.1

Hi there -

New biker here from central Jersey. I just got my "new" used bike - Trek 2.1 2007. Can't wait to ride it when the weather gets better. I am going to take it to a LBS (Efinger sports in Bound B rook) to have it fitted.

Photos are attached. I am very very excited!

Pls. send any tips/hints my way. I'll very much appreciate it.

Did I say I got a new bike?!

They're not a bike shop. They're a sporting goods store. They will most likely know less than you about fitting.
Do a search for bicycle shops in your town or look in the yellow pages.

It has been raining for the past two days. I don't want to ride the bike in the water. You know how it is.

The Efinger Sports Shop in my area has some good ratings. They are supposed to have a self-sufficient bike dept. I just don't know any other good ones in my area. If you do, please advise.

BTW, any good suggestions for bike racks?

Thanks,

Usually ANY REAL bike shop will do a good fitting.

Rack for the back of the bike? Topeak

Rack for the back of the car? Saris Bones

I just had this post pointed out to me from a regular customer of mine, that is why I am posting almost 6 years later....

We ARE a bike shop Ron...In fact, we are more of a bike shop than most of the "shops" around us. I have run shops my entire life, and have been in the industry for over 30 years, which included time as store manager, mechanic, & bike company sales rep. My head mechanic has been in shops just as long, is a master mechanic and wheel builder. We are authorized dealers for Specialized, Giant, Cannondale, and others. Stock a full selection of accessories, clothing, shoes, etc. from companies like Thule, Shimano, SRAM, Pearl Izumi, Topeak, Park, etc. I am an SBCU certified fit tech as well. We sponsor the local cycling club, as well as their Junior Development team, as well as our sponsorship of the collegiate Rutgers Triathlon Team. SO...before you blow off in the future about how we aren't "a bike shop", do some research on what you are commenting about.
